Here is a new set of Night Patches that adds a few enhancements:

1.  Fades and transitions are increased to 2 minutes each except for the Novice length race.  This was requested by Jake (GPLaps) to make the transitions smoother from day to night to day.

2.  A Light Switch is added to turn the lights on and off with the keyboard "L" key.  :)

For those who aren't familiar with the patches, they change the sky from day to night then back to day in order to simulate a 12 or 24 hour race.  They work during qualification and race for all mods, all country .exes, on and offline, with the D3D7v2 and OpenGLv2 rasterisers.

The most obvious use is to simulate 1967 Sports Car races that ran at night such as LeMans and Sebring; however, there is nothing wrong with using them for a 1965 F1 race at Monaco or a 1971 CanAm race at Road America.

There are five separate patch versions so you can choose how long you want to race at night:

1.  4 Hour Day To 4 Hour Night To 4 Hr Day--simulates a race which has 33% during the first day, 33% at night, and 33% the next day.
2.  6 Hour Day To 6 Hour Night--simulates a race which starts during the day and ends at night.  The first 50% of the race will be during the day.
3.  8 Hour Day To 4 Hour Night--simulates a race which starts during the day and ends at night.  The first 67% of the race will be during the day.
4.  9 Hour Day To 3 Hour Night--simulates the Sebring race which starts during the day and ends at night.  The first 75% of the race will be during the day.
5.  10 Hour Day To 2 Hour Night--simulates a race which starts during the day and ends at night.  The first 83% of the race will be during the day.

As usual, it's important that you read the Read Me for more information and instructions on how to install the patches.

Enjoy!

Lee

Lee,

  Thanks you for those settings expanded possibilities


  It didn't count for the WSC championship, but what about a patch starting the night and ending the day, as at the Reims 12 hours ( started at midnight, with a Le Mans start type ) :notworthy:..after spectators had a cup of Champagne, maybe have you vaguely heard about this Reims area local beverage :D  !

To do that, I'd have to pretty much rewrite the patch as it always starts with day and transitions to night.  Doesn't sound difficult to reverse the direction, but it would take a lot of time and not be worth the effort for just one race.  :sorry:

Lee, that's some impressive work on updating your Night Patch.  :)

Plus, you have a working key press to change the lighting!!!  How the heck?!!!
Also, what are you changing to get the area around the car to be different than the dark "fog" effect out to the horizon?  That's a huge coup!!

Thank you!
